Before: Bland and Bare
The empty New York City apartment didn't fit the homeowners' personalities or style. They wanted a fun, trendy and colorful home that functioned for all their needs.
After: Contemporary Living
A pair of egg chairs lends a modern vibe to the space, while a cowhide area rug grounds the room. Sheers and blinds soften the windows and diffuse the natural light streaming into the room.
Black bookshelves contrast against the white brick fireplace and provide a display for the homeowners' books and accessories. The wall above the fireplace is painted a dark charcoal so that the flat-screen TV almost disappears and doesn't compete with the design of the space.
Sleek Cocktail Console
A streamlined console provides storage and doubles as a cocktail area, while the bright red area rug livens up the space.
Bright and Fun Home Office
Jenna takes advantage of every nook in this apartment, turning this spot into a functional home office. A bright yellow wall helps to define the space, while a black-and-white striped rug adds a cool, graphic element to the area.
A simple gallery wall of the homeowners' travels creates a pretty entrance into their New York City apartment. The leather-and-chrome bench provides the perfect spot for setting down bags and shoes as they come into their home.
